2 CLARIN Goals CLARIN-NL Goals+Activities Phasing Work Plan for 2009 Governance Budget & Funding Caveats Overview

3 Research Infrastructure for HSS researchers –Design –Construction –Validation –Exploitation  eScience working environmenteScience CLARIN Goals

4 Research Infrastructure includes –Language data that are needed for carrying out research –Software operating on data for Enriching them Accessing them for exploration Selecting information from them Visualizing (selections of) data –Metadata and views on metadata so that the existence and properties of resources are easily determined All distributed, web-based and accessible in an interoperable way CLARIN Goals

5 So that –Researcher can work from anywhere –Researchers can create ‘virtual collections’ by combining parts of existing data sources –Researchers can apply software in the form of ‘web services’ operating in combination User-friendly, i.e. no technical skills CLARIN Goals

6 Make the community aware Enable the community to use it –Dissemination activities –Training Sessions –Educational Programme CLARIN Goals

7 Focus on humanities (esp. linguistics) NL-Line EU-Line CLARIN-NL Goals

8 Ensure compatibility of CLARIN-prep specifications with needs of the national research community by –Making an inventory and analyzing national needs –Broad NL participation in standards definition –Conducting validation projects to establish the requirements Build and exploit the NL part of CLARIN as a best practice example for other CLARIN partners Act as a world class service centre in two domains Set up CLARIN-NL national coordination point and support office CLARIN-NL Goals (NL-Line)

9 technical prototype infrastructure as specified by CLARIN-prep –building the grid-based structure –providing the generic services –operating and validating the prototype data infrastructure –surveying existing data and specifying the essential data set –constructing the essential set by means of conversion or (if needed) new digitization actions, and in parallel developing tools to facilitate this process for other resources of the same type. –agreeing on representation standards within CLARIN-prep –validating the prototype on the basis of concrete usage cases –arranging for NL-specific IPR issues, especially related to existing data with IPR restrictions CLARIN-NL Activities (NL-Line)

10 language technology service infrastructure –specifying a set of essential tools and services –constructing the essential set by means of encapsulation or (if needed) porting or building –agreeing on inter-operability standards establishing user needs –surveying current practice in the Netherlands –carrying out pilots and demonstrators with humanities researchers, preferably in an international setting –establishing governance procedures for eliciting, prioritising and selecting extensions and improvements CLARIN-NL Activities (NL-Line)

11 creation and operation of two centres of expertise creation and operation of dissemination, education and awareness facilities setting up and operating national coordination point and develop a business model that guarantees the long term sustainability of the CLARIN infrastructure CLARIN-NL Activities (NL-Line)

12 Consolidate NL’s leading position Seamless transition from preparatory phase to construction phase NL a main hub in the European infrastructure Position CLARIN-NL outside of EU CLARIN-NL Goals (EU-Line)

13 implement and host the governance structure recommended by CLARIN-prep set up and host a main CLARIN Office set up and host a main European CLARIN Technical Centre to build and maintain the technical infrastructure CLARIN-NL Activities (EU-Line)

14 set up and host the central CLARIN Coordination point for –development and maintenance of standards –harmonization of IPR issues –education, dissemination and promotion set up an international example infrastructure, e.g. with –Germany (MPG/MPI-link) –Flanders & South Africa (via the Dutch Language Union) maintain close connections with other relevant players (EU and non-EU) CLARIN-NL Activities (EU-Line)

15 1.2009-2010 Preparation Phase 2.2011-2012 Construction Phase 3.2013-2014 Operation Phase Phases

16 Technical –Requirements (from actual use cases) –Specification, design (user-centered) –Initial prototype Organisational –Relation with other EU-countries –Role of NL in the CLARIN infrastructure –Governance structure Preparation Phase

17 Technical –Implementation –Initial Operation –Extensive testing Validation Evaluation by user groups Organisational –Strategy for sustainability after project end Construction Phase

18 Technical –Exploitation of the infrastructure –Extending the infrastructure with new data / tools/ services should be normal business –Maintenance and updating for new developments / new requests Organisational –Implement sustainable structure Operation Phase

19 Technical –Plan for prototype building and general services –Initials steps in its implementation –Active participation in the first network of centres on a European scale (MPI, INL, Meertens, …) Data –Open Call for projects on data conversion and curation –Support for influencing determination of CLARIN standards and best practices –Support for evaluating CMDI metadata proposal –Support for the inclusion of all existing NL data and tools in CLARIN data and tool repositories. Work plan for 2009

20 Tools & Services & User Needs –Open call for Demonstration projects –Inventory of user needs to get to a specification of a set of essential tools and services National Coordination Point –The national coordination point will be set up. –The governance structure will be implemented. Work plan for 2009

21 Education, Training and Awareness –Plan being elaborated –Events Launching Event, Brokerage activities Possibly IPR-event (in conjunction with STEVIN) with publishers and content-owners … –Support for events related to CLARIN-NL or CLARIN (workshops, conferences, master classes. …) –Website and Wiki –Newsletter Work plan for 2009
